Great for use with the story “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, either as an anticipatory set or a concluding project. Includes step-by-step prewriting process and rubrics for both a narrative essay and a multimedia project. Students will be considering a time when honest communication was important to the outcome of a situation.
Students may write about something they experienced or witnessed. The prewriting process walks students through thinking about a situation where honest communication—or the lack of it—affected the outcome to the situation. Then they will narrow the choices and plan and outline the essay. They will also practice removing unimportant details from a sample paragraph, and then present the prewriting for approval before beginning their paper or project.
After completing the Prewriting Worksheet, students will begin their essay draft or multimedia project. The Rubric can function as the instruction sheet for the project as it includes everything they need to know for grading purposes.
